A loan of $1,000 helped buy rice and sugar.


Consuelo's story

Consuelo is a member of the Manantial Community bank. She is 28, single, and she lives with her parents.

Consuelo has a store in her parents’ house where she sells general groceries, some bookstore items, and telephone services. She does this with her sister’s help.

Consuelo needs a loan for 3,000 PEN to buy rice and sugar.

Consuelo’s dreams are to build a house on the land that she bought and to stock her store with more products.
